"A spoonful of humor--and a few simple exercises--help the wisdom go down, and Andrew Peterson uses an expert hand and gentle humor to remind us that every moment offers the potential for transformation."
--Meredith Maran, author of My Lie

"The Next Ten Minutes is a substantial yet simple antidote to our usual pulsating and mind-numbing twenty-first century lives."
--John Sommers-Flanagan, author of Becoming an Ethical Helping Professional
"Only an exceptional psychotherapist like Dr. Andrew Peterson who is grounded deeply in his personal and professional experience could guide us confidently and safely through a deceptively simple 10 minute portal into a profoundly new state of consciousness!"
--Kate Cremer-Vogel MS, LCPC, coauthor of What Every Adoptive Parent Needs to Know
"Andrew Peterson, a self-admittedly restless mind himself with a penchant for long runs, has just the trip itinerary: a wealth of wildly-exotic, mind-blowing, scene-changing, awareness-building, and habit-modifying 10 minute long walkabouts. Richly creative, compassionately narrated, and brilliantly processed, each unique experiential exercise is a spoke on a wheel designed to bring you back to a grounding sense of self."
--Pavel G. Somov, PhD, psychologist, author of Eating the Moment, Present Perfect, and The Lotus Effect
"I'm a big fan of the ten minute focus (hey, we're all busy!) and Andrew Peterson has mastered it. In this clear, engaging, inspiring book he shows us just how much we can learn, accomplish, and understand in our ordinary lives, in just ten minutes. I feel more zen just opening it."
--Patti Digh, author of Life is a Verb and Four-Word Self-Help
"Like yoga for your mind, Andrew Peterson's simple but profound thought experiments may just change your life. I'll be practicing these mental calisthenics for a long time to come."
--Jessica Berger Gross, author of enLIGHTened How I Lost 40 Pounds with a Yoga Mat, Fresh Pineapples, and a Beagle Pointer
